Hey Skobud, I loved your essay "The Birth of the Jam" about how the Grateful Dead didnt start jamming until late October of '68...

I particularly enjoyed your thesis that the 10/12/68 Avalon performance was so hot because Weir wss not playing that night! So who was that on vocals for that New Potato Caboose?

"The second set jam from 10/12 was unlike anything they had done before that time and it signified a change...I'm saying the attempted firing, this particular show done without Bobby and Pig, led to something new.....Think about it, you go through trying to fire your best friends from the band because they are not good enough, and then you have a show right after without them.....What is going through Jerry and Phil's head at that time??? JUSTIFICATION for the firings, of course...So they take the music in a direction they have not really visited before by doing things they had not done....Mentally freeing them up, without having anything to hold them back....Hence, dare I say, The Birth of the Jam.........."

Keep up the good work Skobud, youre a genious!

I am wondering if your as brite as that Avalon run. Lee Michaels was most likely the highlight of that event, plus The Black Panthers were pretty pissed off in those days. That is the true Birth. Pat yourselves on the back. Looks pretty damn dull to me.
